Any known conflicts between Articulate Presenter and Power Point "Section Zoom"

May 19, 2020

Are there any know conflicts between Articulate Presenter and Power Point "section Zoom?" I created a simple Power Point presentation using section zoom, and when I tried to publish it with Articulate Presenter, I received an error message stating there was a bug. Not sure if I created the Power Point file correctly, or whether there is a known bug conflicting with the zoom feature and the interactivity using Articulate Presenter. 

I attached the simple Power Point file if that helps.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Joseph!

Thanks for attaching your file! I'm noticing the same thing on my end. I've also created a new file and still had the error message appear when previewing the project.

After looking at Microsoft's release notes for PowerPoint, it seems like this function was created for Microsft Ofiice 365 and PowerPoint 2019. Is this the version you are using?

In the meantime, I'm going to generate a bug report so that we can determine a fix! I'll report back with any updates we have.

Thanks. After doing some additional research on my own, I have a feeling the reason is that it conflicts with Presenter's ability to do its own branching. ie,

Nice if I could get the simplicity within Power Point, but I found out how to do it in Presenter, if it doesn't work.
